Common Semi-Truck accident injury Questions
Arizona is a pure comparative fault state. This suggests that, regardless of the percentage, the amount of damages an accident victim may recover will be diminished based on the degree of the victim’s fault. The semi-truck accident’s cause will be investigated by insurance companies and semi-truck accident attorneys to determine the percentage of fault of those involved.
Because there are multiple parties involved, a semi-truck accident claim is far more complex than a car accident. In cases involving semi-truck accidents, figuring out who was at responsibility typically entails figuring out who was negligent. This is frequently, but not always, the semi-truck driver. However, the manufacturer, the cargo company, and the transportation company are other parties that may be at fault for a semi-truck accident.
- Inform the authorities about the accident by dialing 911.
- Take pictures and videos of the accident scene and any damaged parts of the semi-truck and car/s.
- Take note of the contact information of every accident party involved.
- To provide the authorities with your version of the accident, stay on the site as a witness. Any more witnesses should have their details noted.
- Seek medical attention. Call an ambulance.
- Make a written list of your accident injury symptoms, no matter how minor. This will prevent problems with minor issues that may get worse by not being considered as part of your accident-related injuries. Additionally, it is advised that you keep track of any activities you are unable to perform as a result of your accident as well as your pain levels, at least once a week or if there are any substantial changes.

Generally no. You should NEVER speak with representatives from the other party’s insurance company, unless we have authorized you to do so. You should not discuss the facts of the accident or your injuries. Otherwise, we will handle all communications for you. If a representative contacts you, politely tell them that you have retained an attorney to represent you. The representative should then contact us and never contact you again. If they do, please notify us immediately and we will file a complaint with the Department of Insurance because it is unfair claims practice for an insurance representative to contact a party knowingly represented by an attorney.
You may be tempted to post messages, photographs, or videos to social media when you have been injured in an accident, but you should try to resist the urge for the sake of protecting your personal injury claim. It was revealed in an article posted in 2015 by the Huffington Post that the first place insurance companies look when investigating accident and personal injury claims is on social media accounts like Snapchat, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. Insurance companies will look you up on Google for any posts they can use to deny you compensation and discredit your claim. You may think your social media posts are “private,” but an insurance company can still find a way to gain access. The best thing to do to protect your case is to deactivate your social media accounts altogether.
Generally, the answer is “No”. Remember, the insurance company does not work for you – they work for the individual who caused your accident. Oftentimes, even before you obtain medical attention and assess the extent of your injuries, you may be contacted by a claims adjuster who will make you a ridiculous, low-ball offer. They are hoping you will accept this offer before you understand the full extent of your damages. Many people accept these types of offers and sign a release, only to find out further complications “down the road”. Tough Luck. In most states, including Arizona, a release is worded in such a way as to make it almost impossible to ever seek any further compensation after you sign, even if you find your injuries are much worse than you ever anticipated. You shouldn’t agree without first consulting a good Arizona semi-truck accident attorney.
Insurance companies have teams of lawyers and adjusters representing the person who caused your accident and they will do everything possible to reduce the value of your claim. Facing such a team of skilled professionals without having your own legal representation is unwise. It is possible to pursue your claim alone, but you will literally be at the insurance company’s mercy. The insurance company will make you only a small offer or will simply deny your claim altogether. Unless you are well-trained in the law and understand your legal rights, it will be very difficult to combat the insurance company all on your own and know which avenues you should pursue. Each attorney at our firm is a well-trained, skilled semi-truck accident attorney for Arizona. We know the law here and have negotiated against insurance companies many times successfully.
IMMEDIATELY. Hiring experienced semi-truck accident lawyers, like those at Warnock MacKinlay Law, is vital if you are injured in a semi-truck accident. Unfortunately, we see so many victims attempt to represent themselves and generally fail miserably for a number of reasons. Studies have shown that a claimant who is represented by legal counsel “nets” (after medical bills and attorney fees) in excess of 300% more money than those who handle their own claim. The only thing more important than hiring a qualified lawyer after a semi-truck accident is seeking medical attention, and the lawyers at Warnock MacKinlay Law can help you with a good, competent accident doctor.
Generally, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is two years. This means that you have two years from the time the accident occurred to file a claim against the responsible party. If you wait longer than two years, you waive your right to obtaining any compensation for your claim. If you have a claim against a public entity (government), you must make a claim within 180 days from the date of the accident or your rights are waived.
It is almost impossible to determine how much time it will take to resolve your case because every case is different. Cases that settle prior to filing a lawsuit typically resolve more quickly than those that go to trial. At Warnock MacKinlay Law, we will do everything we can to obtain the maximum compensation possible in the shortest amount of time. A typical timeframe for cases to settle is two to four months after your medical care is complete, but those dates can be shorter or longer depending on many factors.
No. We make it easy to afford an attorney if you have been injured in a semi-truck accident. We do not charge any fee whatsoever for an accident consultation. In fact, we do not charge any attorney fees unless we are successful in recovering money for you. Even if there are costs involved, such as investigation, medical records, medical reports, deposition fees and the like, we will advance those monies for you until your case is resolved. We will even refer you to doctors who will not demand payment until the case is resolved. It is our job to make the resolution of your case as easy for you as possible.
Absolutely. There was a study done that looked at accident victims that found that people receive 3.5 times higher payouts after accidents when they have a lawyer, even after the personal injury lawyers payment is subtracted. Also, Arizona personal injury lawyers can take a lot of work away from a victim who needs to focus on their recovery.
Of course. If you are unhappy with your current lawyer for whatever reason, feel free to reach out. We actually get a lot of cases who are individuals who weren’t being taken care of properly by their previous attorneys.
Yes. It is VERY important that you follow all doctors’ instructions. Please be certain that you see your doctor as he or she directs, and not miss appointments, so you can achieve a speedy recovery. If at any time you consider ceasing treatment before you are released, whether for reasons of financial inability to continue, work schedule, etc., please let us know before you miss appointments. Although we in no way direct medical care, we want to make sure you have the ability to see a doctor who can work with you under your circumstances. The insurer can only determine the severity of your injuries if they are treated by your doctor and any symptoms or injuries you are experiencing should be reported to your doctor and treated.
If you do not have health insurance, please speak with your attorney or paralegal and they will assist you in finding health care providers who will wait for payment until your case is settled.
At Warnock MacKinlay Law, we are experts in building value for your injuries and obtaining the best financial result possible without having to go to trial. In the cases that a lawsuit is necessary, most are resolved before a trial occurs. The likelihood that a case settles or goes to trial depends on the facts of each case. If an insurance company contests liability (fault) or the value of your case, there is a greater chance that your case will go to trial. Our staff has more than 100 years of combined experience; thus, we know how to represent you. It is important to have a lawyer representing you who the insurers know will file suit if necessary, as that increases the likelihood of obtaining a good settlement value through negotiation. The insurers know which firms will file suit and which will not do so.
